Coconut Flour Bread

I like this coconut flour bread recipe because it’s high protein, high fiber and made with coconut oil. There are only 4 ingredients so it’s so simple even a guy can make it. Perfect with a little nut butter on it and eaten with one of my favorite green soups and a salad.
Coconut flour is gluten free, high in fiber and low in carbohydrates. 5 Tablespoons of coconut flour has 30 grams of carbohydrates to it’s 27 grams of fiber resulting in 3 net carbs. It’s slightly sweet too, so the bread is more of a heavy high protein compliment to a soup rather than for use with sandwich meats.
How To Make Coconut Flour Bread
This is so drop dead simple, even the worst cooks can make this at home. It uses 4 ingredients, 2 of which are from coconuts.
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup coconut flour
Ideally you’d want to use pasture eggs from your local farmer rather than supermarket eggs because of the improved nutritional profile pasture eggs have. Do what you have to do though.
Mix all ingredients together and pour into a small bread pan wiped down with a little coconut oil.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
Empty the bread out onto a towel or plate and leave it to cool for a while. Lining the bread pan with a little coconut oil should make the job easier.
Because the bread is so dense, it doesn’t rise very high as you can see in the picture. When you prepare your bread pan with the oil, pay attention to the bottom portions of the pan.
